Lady Captain’s Open Day | 9th July 2014

What a day! Lady Captain Carmel pulled out all the stops today for her Ladies’ Open Day with blue skies and sunshine throughout followed by delicious food and great prizes. Unfortunately no-one managed a Hole in One but there was one very close call!!!

We were delighted to see so many Ladies from other Clubs take the time to come along and play today. Thank you to everyone who took part.

Club Winner on the day was Linda Armstrong with a truly impressive 43 pts – great to see Linda playing so well, she really is giving the rest of us ladies a run for our money.

Lady Golfers, win a Nissan Micra Car at Clogher Valley Golf Club

The countdown to our Lady Captain’s Open Day has begun with the arrival of a Nissan Micra Car, kindly sponsored by Gerry McNamee of CarZone Irvinestown for a ‘Hole in One’ at the 3rd hole.

Lady Captain, Carmel Rooney, was on hand to receive the keys from Gerry on Monday Evening.

A great coup for our Club – now we just have to hope that one of the Lady Golfers has the skill (or luck) to win on the day!!!

Clogher Valley In Good Form

Last Sunday the return match of the Conway Cup took place at Clogher Valley Golf Club with Omagh GC the visiting team. A super match played by all; the back nine was very tight. A great second shot by Peter McGirr with a sand wedge over the hedge to land on the green put Clogher Valley in a good spot on the last hole. It was Peter’s putt that secured their first win over 18 holes. The rest of the players didn’t know what way the match was going, until Team Captain Tony Fee called the last group in off the 15th hole. Great excitement when the result was revealed!  Clogher Valley 10.5  Omagh 5.5. Congratulations to team Captain and the players.

This weekend sees our Gents playing for Lady Captain Carmel Rooney’s Prize in her Captains Day. Lady Captain Carmel has decided to have a prize for any of the gents who hit a ‘Hole in One’ so gents polish up your tee off and try for this prize.
